I changed the name for my “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” posts to “My Reading Week.”
A sweet read about a father-daughter motorcycle ride through their changing town and how things stay the same.
What if how you look affects what you can and can’t do? Well, Ogilvy is not having it. And that doesn’t make others happy. Will they get him to conform or will Ogilvy change their point of views?
A quirky (as to be expected from this author) about being oneself, even if one is a marshmallow.
I’ve been meaning to read this and I’m glad I finally did. I thought this was mostly about depression but it was so much more than that. Hilarious.
I’m sure I’ve read The Four Agreements before and I’ve been wanting to read his other books so I picked this up to refresh my memory. I definitely agree with some of the things here but some concepts (or the way they were presented) didn’t connect.
A sweet and funny LGBTQ YA novel perfect for readers who enjoy the drama and hijinks of the TV show Dawson’s Creek. Rafe decides to go to boarding school so he can just be himself not just the gay kid from Colorado. He decides to lie through omission. He also ends up falling in love with one of his classmates. An interesting and entertaining read about identity.
A bridge of sorts between the first and second novel of this series. Cute but ended sort of abruptly.
Wow! Brian Selznick delivers another unique reading experience- similar to what he did with The Invention of Hugo Cabret- this time illustrating a companion of sorts to Walt Whitman’s poems “Live Oak, with Moss.” This cluster of twelve poems, long kept secret for their homoerotic content, is full of passion and yearning describing many stages of love. Included is an in depth analysis of the writing and meanings of these poems.
Written in response to a homophobic article, Merle Miller counteracts with an essay in the New York Times in 1971. Very though-provoking, personal and relatable. Includes a foreword by Dan Savage, the essay, and two afterwords, including one by Miller. A slim book that carries with it a lot of weight.
